Use of nanoparticle addition in coatings has been described to formulate selfhealing and antifouling coatings. The first step in both these cases was to create a hydrophobic surface for which a highly reactive fluoro silane was used. The second property in each case was achieved by the addition of nano-particles. In self-cleaning coatings, easy sliding of water droplet was achieved by the addition of nano-ZnO and nano-silica, while, in the case of anti-fouling coating, this was achieved by addition nano silica, which provided a nano-roughness surface, which was so smooth to avoid sticking any barnacles or seaweeds.
